From today’s Jersey Journal, some hubbub yesterday when a robot was used to blow up a suspicious package that turned out to be full of clothing.
Gregory Borras Jr., a “former fire instructor with the former North Bergen Fire Department before it merged with north hudson regional fire” [are we confused yet?], spied the package and alerted authorities.
“We were crossing the bridge over the PATH trains (on Kennedy Boulevard) and saw this package wrapped very tightly in cellophane,” said Borras, who now lives in Seaside Park. “What was inside the cellophane was black, so it looked like something else was wrapped up inside it.
“I have training in weapons of mass destruction, so I know what to look for,” Borras said, adding that he took a three-day domestic preparedness class in 1999.
